I’ve made lots of new friends this year. Besides thanking each and every one of you, I want to make some of my better posts more accessible. If you’ve just discovered The Lingerie Addict (formerly Stockings Addict), I believe these 10 entries are essential reading.
3 Steps to Buying Lingerie from E-bay is the perfect guide if you’re thinking of getting some knickers from everyone’s favorite auction site. E-bay is my personal choice for vintage pretties.
Should You Wear Stockings to Work? is a post I made for “Wear Stockings to Work Week.” But as a young professional, these are also the questions I asked when deciding whether or not to wear nylons to the office.

Now that the holidays are over, stores are tripping over themselves to get rid of current stock before spring lines come in. If you’ve been eyeing some particularly expensive lingerie, now is the time to snap it up. Here are my top 10 picks for ladies with champagne tastes and grape juice budgets.
P.S. There are some great pieces here for Valentine’s Day too, in case you want to start shopping early. ;-)
Katie at Knickers Blog [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct] gets the credit for telling me about this sale.
Skin, a neophyte on the lingerie and loungewear scene, creates undergarments that are best described as simply sensual. I particularly love the soft fabrics and sophisticated shapes because they’re all about enhancing every woman’s natural beauty.
Access to the sale is by invitation only and pieces are selling for up to 70% off retail price (the stockings above were $90, now $27). At the very least, I think it’s worth signing up to see an alternate perspective on lingerie.
So…what do you think of those stockings? Boring? Or Beautiful?
Hey! Don’t forget to enter the Playful Promises Lingerie Giveaway!Between Mad Men, Dita von Teese, and the rebirth of Burlesque, people are getting passionate over all things vintage. I’ve posted a few of my favorite throwback designs below, but I want to know what you think of this trend.Yay or nay…is retro lingerie here to stay?
Jonathan Aston: $11.81
Nothing says “pin-up” like a pair of backseam stockings, and I adore the vintage-inspired fancy heel on these.
Dita von Teese’s second collection for Wonderbra, this festive red bra and high waist garter belt (looove those button details!) is sure to please.
Babygirl Boutique: $123.90
I go ga-ga for sheer lingerie. Done well, it’s so seductive. Plus, everything in this range was designed by Bernie Dexter!
Cameo Intimates: $89.76 [Editor’s Note: As of January 2015, this site appears to be defunct]
While I don’t yet own this garter panty, I did review the stretch bullet bra here. A bullet bra and full cut panty not only represent classic pin-up, they’re flattering on almost every figure.
Secrets in Lace: $52.99
Did I mention I loved sheer lingerie? Even better than sheer alone is sheer with some accompanying detail…like the pleats on this pin-up brief.
What Katie Did: $103.31
What Katie Did is bringing the bullet bra back in a BIG way after several recent features in Vogue. This set is both classy and captivating.
A newcomer on the luxury lingerie scene, I am already enamored of Cadolle’s slinky take on your grandmother’s favorite girdle.
